A Tasting Tour of Germany for Brand Ambassador Fergus Simpson

Duncan Taylor's Brand Ambassador Fergus Simpson was in Germany last week to host a series of tasting masterclasses. Fergus works closely with the sales team and our stockists to select the right whiskies for each venue according to local tastes and new releases. This was an opportunity to explore the diverse flavours of our many Octave whiskies including some from the newly launched Premium Range. Other featured brands included Battlehill, Black Bull and our Indian Summer Cask Strength Gin. All went down extremely well!
